Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on a seven-step process to address a variety of environmental themes including litter and waste, healthy living and biodiversity.
Children are the driving force behind Eco-Schools. We have representatives from all year groups on the council who help carry out an audit to assess the environmental performance of the school. The pupils decide which environmental themes they want to address and how they are going to do it. Measuring and monitoring are an integral part of the Eco-Schools programme, providing schools with all the evidence they need to really shout about their environmental success.
Schools work towards gaining three awards - Bronze, Silver and the prestigious Green Flag award which symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity. We have achieved our Silver Award and look forward to continued success.
“In the unique Avenue House environment, as well as achieving academically, our children come home with a smile on their faces, enjoy a variety of sports with their friends, sing songs together that they have learnt for concerts – even in the summer holidays! – and are proud of their impressive artwork”
